craftmanship on these 11 tracks refl ects both a deep understanding of this American curiosity and an eagerness to explore, and the musicianship is steadily stellar. For afi cionados, Defl ection is a study in style, form, composition and, most especially, interplay and communication between musicians and their instruments. You can almost hear the eye contact and telling nods exchanged during the recording of the record. Yet for the casual jazz fan, Alper’s fi nely wrought compositions speak to an encyclopedic knowledge of the form that is modern in outlook, reverent of the past and always comfortable in its skin. Bob Nash’s bass and Troy Breaux’s drums form a fl uid rhythm section playful with grace notes and the cadences of Alper’s piano. Were he not occupied shepherding jazz students to the rolling blue pastures, Alper would no doubt have churned out more masterful records. Defl ection is his third, and it’s a charm.
